I have been working at Dakota County Technical College part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Friendly atmosphere, good pay for the work

Cons

Entrenched faculty who feel wholly entitled to their position, no interest in progress, just status quo.

Advice to Management

Shake things up! Take on the unions and brune the dead wood.

    Pros

    Location isn't bad if you live south of the river. Small environment allows staff to get to know each other well. If you get along with the right people you may be promoted rapidly and given a "director" title.

    Cons

    Top management has no leadership ability. Direction consists of saying "make it happen." The "director" title has been devalued. It used to be more meaningful, now there are "directors" for many little areas. Direction changes weekly depending on latest management magazine articles.

    Advice to Management

    Support the good, professional staff--in good times and bad.

    Pros

    Students were the best thing about working here. Also there are many talented staff and faculty. Cutting edge programming. A little growth and innovation.

    Cons

    Despite many talented staff and faculty, leadership rarely recgonizes them, except for the favorites who go out of their way to "make headlines." Remember there are many more in the trenches to do much more, but never get credit. Also the leadership commonly takes credit for the labors of those below them. Little sense of community--too many cliques.

    Advice to Management

    Give more credit to those who are involved in daily, constant student contact. If it were not for them, there would be no college.
